Witches Are For Burning

Burn, Witch, Burn

Burn, Witch, Burn (1962) is also known as Night of the Eagle. Kinda hard to determine which movie title is more marketable…NOT.

Burn, Witch, Burn

Imagine the embarrassed look on Norman Taylor’s face when he finds out his wife has been practicing witchcraft. Sure, lots of alternative lifestyle housewives do this, but Norman is a teacher at a prestigious University in England where he hands out failing grades for anyone who believes in that mystical poo poo.

Tansy, his wife, has been using her charms to help her husband succeed and keep evil away. So imagine the other embarrassed look on his face when evil comes knockin’ after he throws all of her talismans in the fire.

Of all the mystical poo poo that goes off the rail, it’s the giant gargoyle eagle on the school’s rooftop that goes after Norman in the hallways, crashing through stuff to peck out his disbelieving eyes that gives one pause. Tansy needs to right this wrong and offers herself up as collateral to whomsoever is causing this hell.

Burn, Witch, Burn

Burn, Witch, Burn (it lives up to one of its titles towards the end) is slow to get moving, but for 1962 there’s some creepy stuff to keep you interested. Like Tansy, for instance. With a name like that, you know this gal’s a real show-stopper.
